The Society for Risk Analysis Europe Benelux- Chapter kindly invites you to register for its third annual conference to be held on March 26, 2018 at Lakehouse SCK-CEN in Moll, Belgium.

This year’s theme is “CHANGE IN RISK – RISK IN CHANGE”. We invite professionals from academia, policy and industry to participate and share with us their reflections and current work on this theme. Participation for this event is free.

This call for abstract invites authors to submit abstracts from papers that engage with the interconnected processes of change in risk and risk in change.

Potential topics include: risks to human health and the environment, digital risks and security, risk perception and communication, risk ethics, risks and regulation, and risk literacy and education.

Abstracts (maximum 250 words) must include a title, the names and affiliations of all authors (presenting author underlined), and maximum five keywords. The abstract should be sent to srae_benelux_2018@SCKCEN.BE

3rd Nordic Chapter Risk Conference 2-3 November 2017, Helsinki, Finland

Call for abstracts to the 3rd Nordic Chapter Risk Conference

The third Nordic Chapter Risk Conference will be held in November 2-3, 2017 at Aalto University, Helsinki, Finland.

The Nordic Chapter of the Society for Risk Analysis Europe (SRA Europe) invites abstracts to the 3rd conference which will be held at Aalto University, Espoo, Finland, November 2-3, 2017. The University can be reached from Helsinki by bus (20 minutes). Please submit your abstract by September 15th, 2017.

The theme of the conference “Risk and Security” highlights the role risk plays in relation to security. Security concerns and related risk issues are today in the heart of organizations, governments and international institutions. There are however, no simple ways to deal with these concerns and issues and conventional risk assessment methods are challenged by the need for new concepts and tools to properly handle security risks.

Invitation to take an active role in SRA Europe

Invitation to take an active role in SRA Europe e.g. as Board member

SRA Europe is a non-profit organization that aims to bring together individuals and organisations interested in risk assessment, risk management and risk communication in Europe. Our main activity in this respect is, of course, the SRA Europe conference, that is held annually at varying locations within Europe.

As an organization SRA Europe depends on the efforts of a small group of researchers and other professionals who are willing to put in some of their time and energy. These individuals come from different countries and represent different disciplinary backgrounds, interests and expertises. Ways to contribute vary, including such tasks as joining the Scholarship Committee, taking on board functions such as treasurer, secretary or president, taking responsibility for the content of the website or organizing the annual meeting.

The affairs of SRA-E are conducted by a Board (also called the Executive Committee), comprising eight members. By June 2017, there will be two positions available in the Board of SRA-Europe. To fill thess positions, the Board welcomes suggestions for good potential candidates.

The duration of the Board membership is 5 years. The responsibilities of the board members are distributed among the board members, mostly on a 2-yearly basis. Serving on the Board means attending 2 physical meetings a year, one of which takes place during the annual conference. Additionally, there are approximately 4 to 5 telephone or skype meetings. Depending on the position within the Board a board member is expected to take care of specific tasks which relate to his/her responsibility.

Election and appointment will take place during the General Assembly meeting that will be be held in June 2017 during the conference in Lisbon, Portugal.

The Board is happy to answer questions from potential candidates or from those who wish to nominate them. You can contact the Board at sraeurope@eu-vri.eu.
